With all the stresses and fears plaguing many private practice owners right now, I thought this would be a good time to focus on mindset. There are some key components to controlling our mindset that I believe all practice owners should know and be utilizing in these difficult times.
To that end, this week’s highlights podcast is taken from two earlier episodes (CBP #83 and CBP #84) I recorded during a frightening, emotional 3 months when my infant son was hospitalized with a life-threatening illness. I candidly discuss key situations that unfolded, including what I was feeling, where I found sources of inspiration, and what I learned that can be applied to make any practice stronger. This is a “time lapse” version of what actually unfolded over 3 months—starting from the early, fingers-crossed stage through to when we were finally able to take Gray home—so you get to hear how things worked out.
More specifically, I discuss these mindset-oriented topics:
- How finding reasons to be joyful can help you feel centered so you can make better business decisions.
- Why considering your goals achievable will make you more likely to reach them.
- The importance of staying in the moment so you can really appreciate your wins.
- How to connect with your patients to focus them on what they really care about so they’ll stay engaged in their own program until they fully heal.
- An exercise that will help you remember not to take things for granted that were once a reason for celebration.
- Why making a review of your own performance a priority will help you move your cash-based practice from one that survives to one that thrives—plus some specific strategies that will help you do so.
